presidency in the united states. so what i found was very interesting. the same scenario for the popular vote happen for ohio and florida. the support for obama is bigger in ohio and florida and his winning margin. so you can argue that that vote mattered a lot. if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. so then i looked at one of mitt romney and obama -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama and 22 per mitt romney. quite frankly, it has been about that -- roughly three to one. quite frankly, it has been high all the way through. but what if they split it evenly or romney just got a little bit more? if mitt romney had 151% of the vote, he would've won ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. in ohio and florida, all you have to do is win a little over one third of the lgbt vote win those states. while i don't think that that suggests that in the way we are now talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy about, i don't thin

young men of color leadership, that is part of why it matters barack obama is our president. a generation of children for thinking of president looking that way. people who grow up in states with women governors, you know, tulsi gabbard who's going to be sworn in in hawaii. she was just elected the other night. then it makes a much more likely at the earliest asian people are going to enter a list of public politics for the people around them to say hey, you should run, which is that crucial thing to get people at the beginning so they can amass the power to get the big jobs in the most powerful parts of their lives. >> and let's not leave out tammy baldwin. the person happens to be. >> i was just about to raise the question about tammy baldwin, another first come the first lesbian, the first gay center in american history. what special expectation or constrictions are possibilities might come with her being the first lesbian in the senate. i wonder if she might experience the same catch-22 that president obama experiences, where on the one hand he's not being as forceful as th

. in the state of massachusetts had a weak consent agreement it was under governor romney's administration. here now, here is deval patrick and under president obama, let's put partisanship aside. let's make sure you have the authority and the resources to do the job. we want eugene the job because we ought to be mindful of the comments that ms. lovelace made and all the other people waiting to see if they are going to die from this contaminated drug. we don't want excuses but we don't want to leave this law on big u.s. because you are always sued if you act and if you assume you have the authority when you don't your call before the committee to save how could you have authority when congress didn't give it to you? i think we have to put our partisanship aside, the election is over, figure out a clear law for the federal government to be able to act because with all due respect, this is not a state issue of drugs being shipped around the country. thank you mr. chairman. >> sure and i will be the first of recognized the chairman of the fda. >> you might not want that job. >>
